Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Oh the acadamea of it all

Slate magazine:

Not what the link implies. Look at some of the 'classes'.

My favorite: The best professor ever at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro once brought a class on tour with the band so her students could observe the tight-knit Deadhead community up close.

Outstanding...first exhibit: there apparently WAS a marketing strategy all along, as early as 69!

Yeah, I win "one" here sometime back...right?

Second, WTF? There's not a full session on the Forum? A single presentation on William Tell???

Shocking oversight.

True Tell. If someone can put together a year's worth of Dead tuning, certainly someone can create a class discussing the psychological ramifications of this forum. Particularly you! :)
